Joost Niemöller is a Dutch freelance journalist. He wrote a book on MH17 titled ‘De doofpotdeal” and publishes blogs on this subject on his personal website joostniemoller.nl. His book had a couple of factual incorrect statement and Niemöller again makes various mistakes in his blog.
Today Niemöller published a new blog which is about the BBC documentary titled ‘Conspiracy files: who shot down MH17?“which will be broadcast on May 3. The docu will discuss various scenario’s which could have been the cause for the downing of MH17. Scenario’s like a shot down by an Ukraine fighteraircraft, a bomb planted by the CIA and a BUK surface to air missile.
The docu will show an interview with German journalist Billy Six. Six went to Ukraine and spoke to eyewitness. 7 of these eyewitness say they saw a fighter jet.
Niemöller writes in his April 25 blog: Daarin komen voor het eerst in de westerse media getuigen aan het woord die zich bevonden op de crashsite. Translated: “In the BBC documentary for the first time in Western media witness who were at the crashsite are telling what they saw”
Niemoller continues to state the Dutch media are not interested in showing eyewitness who testified that they saw fighter jets. “There has never been a Dutch documentary in which eyewitness were shown unprejudiced” according Niemöller
On Twitter Niemoller even states the Dutch media is censoring the “news” MH17 was shot down by a fighter aircraft.

It is really nonsense.
Dutch TV KRO Reporter made a documentary about MH17. It showed both the scenario of a BUK as well as the scenario MH17 was shot down by an aircraft. The documentary was aired at October 30, 2014 and can be seen here. At 21:54 into the program an eyewitness is seen stating “i saw a small military aircraft”
For example Dutch TV program Nieuwsuur went to the crash site and interviewed some people. This man also saw a military aircraft.
Jeroen Akkermans item in the Dutch RTL Nieuws also showed an eyewitness talking about seeing a military aircraft. It is at 4:46 in the item.
An overview of many more eyewitness who saw one or more jets is here.by
